Many people are not aware that chiropractic is one of the most ancient health care methods that has continued its use through the modern day. It has continually improved, advanced and adapted for centuries. Despite having been the subject of misinformation and doubt, it is also a highly respected branch of health science. Over the past one hundred years, chiropractic has gained greater scientific backing through research and studies, and the benefits it carries as an effective and holistic health care approach has been experienced by millions.

At Legacy Chiropractic, we stand behind the improvements of our profession and are pleased to offer a brief look at the history of chiropractic methodology, philosophy and practice. We hope this sheds some light on the benefits it has to offer our Tucker, GA community.

A Brief History of Chiropractic Care

Dr. D.D. Palmer recognized the significance of spinal pressure on nerves. In 1895, Dr. Palmer defined the misalignment of a spinal bone as vertebral subluxation. He was the first person to diagnose a patient with the condition and also the first person to deliver a chiropractic adjustment to correct the condition.

In the decades that followed, Dr. Palmer’s son, Dr. B.J. Palmer, continued to advance his studies, which eventually resulted in establishing the Palmer School of Chiropractic. This school went on to become a leading institute for holistic approaches to natural health care.

Later Advancements

Since the Palmer School was established, many other institutes have opened all over the world. Each of these, in its own way, have advanced the science further. New methods, philosophies, approaches and techniques are constantly being developed and refined. New advancements in technology improve the effectiveness of diagnosing and caring for spinal subluxation. As chiropractic continues to grow, Dr. Quentre Shannon and Dr. Jessica Harris and their staff are well trained in using these advances in techniques and technology to better serve you.
